There is no way to restore order on the road. Every day we get news of casualties on the road in the media. Who will stop the procession of these bodies on the road? A couple’s life lamp was extinguished when they were hit by a bus in the capital. In Chuadanga, a couple on a motorcycle were killed in a similar collision with a local vehicle named Alamsadhu. A girl was killed in an autorickshaw accident in Savar and a child was killed in a tractor accident in Bakshiganj. Two policemen were killed in a collision with a vehicle on their way back to the police station on a motorcycle after completing their duty in Lalmonirhat. Two people were killed in separate road accidents in Habiganj. A young man was killed when he was hit by a covered van in Chittagong. One person has been killed in a motorcycle accident in Comilla. Besides, 20 people were injured in a collision between two buses at Ghior in Manikganj. In the last two days, lives have fallen on the road. Despite the Prime Minister’s Office issuing directives, formulating new laws and taking initiatives to implement them, the real picture is different. A study by the Road Accident Research Institute (ARI) found that reckless speed of vehicles was responsible for 53 percent of accidents. But there is no success in controlling speed, stopping small vehicles on the highway and reckless movement of vehicles. One million Nasimon-Karimon-Easybikes are still plying the roads and highways of the country. Autorickshaws, battery powered rickshaws, easybikes are being imported freely. At least 5 lakh unfit buses, trucks, covered vans and human haulers are running freely across the country. Hundreds of thousands of unregistered autorickshaws and motorcycles are plying on the roads and highways. These vehicles are the main source of road accidents. There is no example of punishment for those responsible for the accident. As a result, the drivers drive at will. Overtake with high risk. In addition, there is a lack of training for drivers, which is one of the causes of road accidents. There is no movement of people on the sidewalk. So people are forced to walk on the main road and get into accidents. Seat belts are fastened on buses, and the use of helmets is low, leading to deaths in minor accidents. Lately, driving with a mobile phone in the ear seems to be the fashion of many drivers. Although there are laws to prevent this. But he is not using the law. This is also the reason for the accident. The Prime Minister herself, realizing the importance and necessity of this, has called an emergency meeting of the cabinet and approved the Road Transport Act 2018. However, it is sad but true that the situation is far from improving, there is no minimum discipline anywhere. Restoring order on the road is not an unresolved issue. This requires positive thinking and concerted action. Transport owners, workers as well as passengers need to be aware and ensure proper enforcement of the law.
